Jørgen grew up on Rennesøy, a small island outside Stavanger. His family owns a campsite in Bergen, where Jørgen used to work during school vacations. Varied tasks and responsibility has made Jørgen keen to take on new challenges.
For many years, Jørgen has a central role at his family’s campsite, cleaning, helping at the reception, trenching and with the livestock, and designing offers to business customers. He has a master’s degree in Industrial Economics from the University of Stavanger, and started working at Experis in the autumn of 2011.
At the beginning of his Experis career, Jørgen worked with recruitment, his tasks mainly consisting of conducting interviews, reference checking and searching for talented and skilled engineers.
Helping people find work
Helping companies find skilled and competent employees for exciting and challenging assignments is a major motivation to Jørgen.
"To me, the greatest pleasure is matching the right company with the right person. In addition, we have a good internal work environment, both here in Stavanger and throughout the rest of the country. No two days are like, and I’m constantly in contact with new and exciting people every day. Experis is taken seriously, by both employers and consultants."
Jørgen’s role in Experis
Jørgen fills the position of Senior Advisor at Experis. "The most important part of the work I do, is to be an intermediary between the candidate and the customer. It’s important to understand our consultants well, to be able to offer exciting opportunities and be a good employer. Also, understanding our customer’s companies is important, to find optimal solutions to their problems. I’m dependent on understanding their business well."
Jørgen is also engaged outside of his primary tasks. He’s responsible for the Experis Consultant Club in Stavanger, and has worked with several large recruitment projects. Jørgen also works closely with our Executive Division, headhunting candidates, both nationally and internationally.
